Although it sounds obvious we do like to highlight to all those interested in getting married at Loch an Eilein that it is an outside venue and there is no ‘bad weather’ alternative for the ceremony. That means that no matter the weather the ceremony will take place outside! Outfit planning should take this into account!

Loch an Eilein is a stunningly beautiful and very special location, and it is kept as natural as possible. This means that we don’t permit marquees, tents, seats or confetti for weddings, however, we can allow the use of a small garden-style ‘instant’ gazebo for the bride and groom to stand under if they have one.
